Datasheet-related Stratagems

VENGEANCE FOR MONARCHIA1CP
Word Bearers – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Never will the outrage in beloved Monarchia be forgiven; the idols toppled there by Guillimans sons will be reforged from their bones.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a WORD BEARERS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an ULTRAMARINES unit, or against a unit that is a successor Chapter of the Ultramarines, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll wound roll.
ETERNAL HATRED1CP/2CP
Chaos Space Marines – Boarding Actions – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The hatred the warriors of the Traitor Legions hold for the Imperium and the Emperor has burned for millennia.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to shoot, or in the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, add 1 to that attack’s wound roll. If that unit has the TERMINATOR or POSSESSED keyword, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 1CP.
DEATH TO THE FALSE EMPEROR!1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The seething hatred that the Heretic Astartes harbour for the Corpse Emperor and his weakling, thin-blooded Space Marines is a weapon unto itself.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an ADEPTUS ASTARTES or SANCTIC ASTARTES unit, you can re-roll the hit roll.
COGITATED FATES1CP
Cogs of Vashtorr – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Vashtorr is a being unfettered by linear time and possessed of infinite patience and inventiveness. He thinks nothing of setting in motion centuries-long chains of cause and effect that transform reality into a mechanism of death calibrated to do his bidding and leave his foes with nowhere to hide from his worshippers’ wrath.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase, each time a model in that unit makes an attack, the target cannot receive the Benefits of Cover against that attack.
CRUEL BLADESMEN2CP
Emperor’s Children – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Fulgrim's scions are renowned for their bladecraft, toying with their inferiors while preparing an exquisite, penetrating thrust.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an EMPEROR’S CHILDREN unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
BITTER ENMITY1CP
Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

The Legion’s contempt for the Imperial Fists runs deep, unleashed in a surge of violent atrocity whenever they clash with Dorn’s sons.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an IRON WARRIORS unit from your army is selected to fight. Until the end of the phase, each time a HERETIC ASTARTES model in that unit makes a melee attack against an IMPERIAL FISTS unit, or against a unit that is a successor Chapter of the Imperial Fists, you can re-roll the hit roll and you can re-roll the wound roll.
TANK DESTROYERS1CP
Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

No armour is safe from the guns of the IV Legion, and once an enemy war engine is marked for destruction, its doomed is sealed.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase or the Fight phase. Select one enemy VEHICLE unit. Until the end of the phase, each time an IRON WARRIORS HERETIC ASTARTES model makes an attack against that enemy unit, an unmodified hit roll of 6 automatically wounds the target.
METHODICAL ANNIHILATION1CP
Iron Warriors – Battle Tactic Stratagem

With unceasing firepower do the Iron Warriors prevail.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when an IRON WARRIORS unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase:
  • When resolving that unit’s attacks, you can re-roll one damage roll.
  • Each time a model in that unit makes an attack with a weapon that has the Blast ability, for the purposes of determining how many attacks are made with that weapon, double the number of models in the target unit.
  • If that unit is a VEHICLE unit, it can make attacks with Blast weapons against units within Engagement Range; however, if it does so, each time it makes an attack with a Blast weapon this phase, on an unmodified hit roll of 1 that unit suffers 1 mortal wound after all of its attacks have been resolved.
TAKEN ALIVE1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Creations of Bile – Boarding Actions – Epic Deed Stratagem

To be snatched away for experimentation by Fabius Bile and his creations is a truly horrifying fate.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when an enemy CHARACTER unit is destroyed by a melee attack made by a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army. Until the end of the battle:
  • Subtract 1 from the Leadership characteristic of every enemy model.
  • Your opponent cannot use the Insane Bravery Stratagem.
  • Your opponent cannot use the Command Re-roll Stratagem to re-roll a Morale test.
GLITCHCURSE1CP
Cogs of Vashtorr – Epic Deed Stratagem

The machine spirits of bellicose weapons blaze in Vashtorr’s sight just as mortal souls do to other daemons. With but a flicker of his will, the Arkifane twists and redirects those fierce energies back against the weapons’ wielders.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase, when an enemy unit within 18" of and visible to your WARLORD has finished making its attacks. If any of those attacks targeted a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army that was within 6" of your WARLORD, roll one D6: on a 2-4, that enemy unit suffers D3 mortal wounds; on a 5+, that enemy unit suffers 3 mortal wounds.
TAKEN ALIVE1CP
Creations of Bile – Epic Deed Stratagem

To be snatched away for experimentation by Fabius Bile and his followers is an altogether nightmarish fate.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when the enemy WARLORD is destroyed by a melee attack made by a CREATIONS OF BILE model from your army. Until the end of the battle:
  • Subtract 1 from the Leadership characteristic of every model in your opponent’s army.
  • Your opponent cannot use the Insane Bravery Stratagem.
  • Your opponent cannot use any rules to re-roll a Morale test.
FLAY THEM ALIVE1CP
Night Lords – Epic Deed Stratagem

Death does not always follow defeat. To the enemy’s most influential champions, the Night Lords reveal their most sadistic talents, the victims’ chilling screams broadcast to erode their allies’ mettle.

Use this Stratagem in the Fight phase, when the enemy WARLORD is destroyed by a melee attack made by a NIGHT LORDS HERETIC ASTARTES model from your army. Until the end of the battle, each time a Combat Attrition test is taken for an enemy unit, subtract 1 from that Combat Attrition test.
VEILED AGENDA1CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The ploys and machinations of the Alpha Legion are ineffable to outsiders, the heretics' foes kept guessing or else deliberately fed contradictory disinformation.

Use this Stratagem after selecting secondary objectives or Agendas, if your army contains any units with the ALPHA LEGION keyword. Do not reveal one of your selections to your opponent. The first time you score victory points or experience points for that secondary objective or Agenda, reveal it to your opponent. Note that you must still make a record of your selection. We recommend writing this down and concealing it until revealed. You can only use this Stratagem once.
RAID SUPPLY LINES2CP
Red Corsairs – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Daring pre-emptive strikes against the enemy’s supply lines and rearguard ensure that their reinforcements are either diverted or delayed by logistical anarchy.

Use this Stratagem at the start of the Reinforcements step of your opponent’s Movement phase, if a RED CORSAIRS WARLORD from your army is on the battlefield. If it is the first or the second battle round, you can select one of your opponent’s Strategic Reserves or Reinforcements units. That unit cannot arrive on the battlefield this phase for any reason, even if it has another rule that states it always arrives on the battlefield during a specific battle round (e.g. Drop Pod Assault). You can only use this Stratagem once.
SABOTAGED ARMOURY1-3CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Alpha Legion agents and saboteurs infiltrate enemy targets long before the foe join the battle.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an enemy VEHICLE model is destroyed. If there are any ALPHA LEGION units from your army on the battlefield, your opponent does not roll to see if that model explodes: it does so automatically (if that model is affected by a rule that says it never explodes, ignore both that rule and this Stratagem and roll to see if it explodes as normal). If that model has a Wounds characteristic of 9 or less, this Stratagem costs 1CP; if that model has a Wounds characteristic of 10-19, this Stratagem costs 2CP; otherwise, it costs 3CP.
DEADLY AMBUSH2CP
Alpha Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Hydra knows all. Accessing scan-feeds from hidden Legion ships, interpreting the whispers of warp gheists or acting on data from embedded traitors, few esoteric incursions are unexpected by the Alpha Legion.

Use this Stratagem at the end of the Reinforcements step of your opponent’s Movement phase. Select one enemy unit that was set up on the battlefield as Reinforcements this phase. Until the end of your next turn, each time an ALPHA LEGION model from your army makes an attack against that unit, add 1 to that attack’s hit roll.
CAKOSPARK PRATTLE1CP
Cogs of Vashtorr – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The gibbering of Vashtorr’s imps replicates itself through the enemy’s command and control networks, a data-daemonic wall of binharic gibberish that fouls the best-laid plans.

Use this Stratagem after your opponent uses a Stratagem (excluding Command Re-roll), if your WARLORD is on the battlefield. Until the end of the battle, the CP cost your opponent must pay to use that Stratagem again is increased by 1. You can only use this Stratagem once.
UNDERHAND SCHEMING1CP
Night Lords – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The honourable fight is a laughable concept to the Night Lords, who employ darting strikes, feigned retreats and all manner of dirty tactics to win the battle.

Use this Stratagem at the start of your Charge phase. Select one NIGHT LORDS unit from your army. Until the end of the phase, that unit is eligible to declare a charge in a turn in which it Fell Back.
SUBLIME INFILTRATION1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Alpha Legion – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

More illusive than shadows, the Alpha Legion are amongst the keenest infiltrators in the galaxy.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when an ALPHA LEGION unit from your army is set up within an Entry Zone. That unit can make a Normal Move of up to 6".
CONFLUENCE OF TRAITORS1CP
Black Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Black Legions ranks are host to warriors of diverse origins, enabling their warbands to draw upon an array of deadly skills.

Use this Stratagem in your Command phase. Select one BLACK LEGION HERETIC ASTARTES unit from your army, then select one Legion Trait. Until the start of your next Command phase, models in that unit have that Legion Trait. You can only use this Stratagem once.
UNRELENTING ONSLAUGHT2CP
Black Legion – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

The Black Legion let nothing stand in their way.

Use this Stratagem in your Movement phase, when you select a BLACK LEGION unit from your army to move. Until the start your next Movement phase:
  • That unit can ignore any or all modifiers to its Move characteristic, Advance rolls and charge rolls.
  • That unit is eligible to shoot and declare a charge, even if it Falls Back this turn.
VOX SCREAM2CP
Night Lords – Wargear Stratagem

Hideous screams of an aggressive techno-virus infiltrate the communication systems of the target, temporarily rendering it incapable of command.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one enemy unit within 12" of a NIGHT LORDS unit from your army. Until the start of your next Movement phase, that unit loses all of its aura abilities. You can only use this Stratagem once.
DAEMON SHELLS1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Wargear Stratagem

Crafted on tainted forge worlds and infused with warp energy, these shells release a mind-sickening scream as they are launched, voicing a craving to consume the soul of their target.

Use this Stratagem in your Shooting phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES unit from your army is selected to shoot. Until the end of the phase:
  • Add 6" to the Range characteristic of all bolt weapons models in that unit are equipped with.
  • Each time a model in that unit makes a ranged attack with a bolt weapon, improve the Armour Penetration characteristic of that attack by 1.
SMOKESCREEN1CP
Chaos Space Marines – Wargear Stratagem

Whether unleashing warp-fume canisters from hull-mounted launchers, sickly smoke from blood-burning embrasures or some other malign artifice, Chaos Space Marines' thrice-cursed vehicles can screen their acts of vengeance from the enemy.

Use this Stratagem in your opponent’s Shooting phase, when a TRAITORIS ASTARTES SMOKESCREEN unit from your army is selected as the target of an attack. Until the end of the phase, each time an attack is made against that unit, subtract 1 from that attack’s hit roll.
HEXAGRAMMATIC WARD1CP
Word Bearers – Wargear Stratagem

Diabolical wards of protection can turn aside the enemy’s blows.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an attack is allocated to a WORD BEARERS model from your army. The Damage characteristic of that attack is changed to 0. You can only use this Stratagem once, unless you are playing a Strike Force or Onslaught battle (in which cases, you can use this Stratagem twice).
HEXAGRAMMATIC WARDS2CP
Chaos Space Marines – Word Bearers – Boarding Actions – Wargear Stratagem

Diabolical wards of protection can turn aside the enemy’s blows, and every Word Bearers armour is covered in dark script devoted to the Chaos Gods.

Use this Stratagem in any phase, when an attack is allocated to a WORD BEARERS model from your army. The Damage characteristic of that attack is changed to 0.
Blast Weapons
Some weapons have ‘Blast’ listed in their profile’s abilities. These are referred to as Blast weapons. In addition to the normal rules, the following rules apply to Blast weapons:
  1. If a Blast weapon targets a unit that has between 6 and 10 models, it always makes a minimum of 3 attacks. So if, when determining how many attacks are made with that weapon, the dice rolled results in less than 3 attacks being made, make 3 attacks instead. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 6 or more models, and you roll a 2 to determine how many attacks are made, that roll is counted as being a 3 and that weapon makes three attacks against that unit.
  2. When a Blast weapon targets a unit that has 11 or more models, do not roll dice to randomly determine how many attacks are made – instead, make the maximum possible number of attacks. For example, if a Grenade D6 weapon with the Blast rule targets a unit that has 11 or more models, that weapon makes six attacks against that unit.
Blast weapons can never be used to make attacks against a unit that is within Engagement Range of the firing model’s unit, even if the weapon has the Pistol type or if the firing model is a VEHICLE or a MONSTER – firing high-explosives at point-blank range is simply unwise.

  • Blast Weapons: Minimum three attacks against units with 6+ models. Always make maximum number of attacks against units with 11+ models.
  • Can never be used to attack units within the firing unit’s Engagement Range.
HEAVY
Heavy weapons are amongst the biggest guns on the battlefield, but they require bracing to fire at full effect and are unwieldy to bring to bear at close quarters.
When an INFANTRY model shoots a Heavy weapon, subtract 1 from the hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks if the firing model’s unit has moved for any reason this turn (e.g. it made a Normal Move this turn).

  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if firing model is INFANTRY and its unit has moved this turn.
Hit Roll
When a model makes an attack, make one hit roll for that attack by rolling one D6. If the result of the hit roll is equal to or greater than the attacking model’s Ballistic Skill (BS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a ranged weapon) or its Weapon Skill (WS) characteristic (if the attack is being made with a melee weapon), then that attack scores one hit against the target unit. If not, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends.

If an attack is made with a weapon that has an ability that says it ‘automatically hits the target’, no hit roll is made – that attack simply scores one hit on the target unit. An unmodified hit roll of 6 always scores a hit, and an unmodified hit roll of 1 always fails. A hit roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be -2 or worse, it is changed to be -1. Similarly, if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a hit roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.
Mortal Wounds
Some attacks inflict mortal wounds – these are so powerful that no armour or force field can withstand their fury. Each mortal wound inflicts 1 point of damage on the target unit, and they are always applied one at a time. Do not make a wound roll or saving throw (including invulnerable saves) against a mortal wound – just allocate it as you would any other attack and inflict damage to a model in the target unit. Unlike damage inflicted by normal attacks, excess damage from mortal wounds is not lost. Instead, keep allocating damage to another model in the target unit until either all the damage has been allocated or the target unit is destroyed.

If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, resolve the normal damage first. If an attack inflicts mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, but the normal damage is subsequently saved, the target unit still suffers the mortal wounds, as described before. If an ability modifies the damage inflicted by a weapon, and that weapon can inflict mortal wounds in addition to the normal damage, the modifier does not apply to any mortal wounds that are inflicted (unless the rule specifically states otherwise).

  • Each mortal wound inflicted on a unit causes one model in the unit to lose one wound.
  • No saving throws can be made against mortal wounds.
  • Mortal wounds inflicted by attacks in addition to normal damage always apply, even if normal damage saved.
Wound Roll
Each time an attack scores a hit against a target unit, make a wound roll for that attack by rolling one D6 to see if that attack successfully wounds the target. The result required is determined by comparing the attacking weapon’s Strength (S) characteristic with the target’s Toughness (T) characteristic, as shown on the following table:

WOUND ROLL
ATTACK’S STRENGTH vs TARGET’S TOUGHNESSD6 ROLL REQUIRED
Is the Strength TWICE (or more) than the Toughness?2+
Is the Strength GREATER than the Toughness?3+
Is the Strength EQUAL to the Toughness?4+
Is the Strength LOWER than the Toughness?5+
Is the Strength HALF (or less) than the Toughness?6+

If the result of the wound roll is less than the required number, the attack fails and the attack sequence ends. An unmodified wound roll of 6 always successfully wounds the target, and an unmodified wound roll of 1 always fails. A wound roll can never be modified by more than -1 or +1. This means that if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a wound roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be -2 or worse, it is changed to be -1. Similarly, if, after all the cumulative modifiers to a wound roll have been calculated, the total modifier would be +2 or better, it is changed to be +1.

The AGENT OF CHAOS keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:


- If this model is your WARLORD it gains the AGENT OF CHAOS keyword.

The keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

The ABADDON THE DESPOILER keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

Wanton Destruction

With skills honed in vast, bloody wars against the most heavily armoured or dug-in opposition, Chaos Space Marines punish such enemies with malicious barrages of utter destruction.

While this unit is engaged in Wanton Destruction, each time a model in this unit makes an attack with a Heavy, Rapid Fire or Grenade weapon, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores 1 additional hit.
Wanton Massacre

Barbarous firefights and the indiscriminate slaying of foes have been notorious hallmarks of the Heretic Astartes wars for millennia.

While this unit is engaged in Wanton Massacre, each time a model in this unit makes an attack with a Rapid Fire, Assault or Pistol weapon, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores 1 additional hit.
Wanton Slaughter

Close assaults are the favoured tactics of many traitors, coupling murderous short-ranged firepower with the unrestrained slaughter of hand-to-hand execution.

While this unit is engaged in Wanton Slaughter, each time a model in this unit makes an attack with an Assault, Pistol or melee weapon, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores 1 additional hit.
Let the Galaxy Burn

Drawing upon countless years of festering bitterness and hate, Chaos Space Marines attack with a ferocity that is terrible to behold. Whether annihilating the foe at range or butchering them without mercy at close quarters, there is no aspect of death unknown to these traitors. Unencumbered by stultifying doctrines, they are capable of adapting their murderous priorities with horrifying ease, and there are no limits to the levels of devastation they will unleash to vent their anger.

If every unit from your army has the TRAITORIS ASTARTES keyword (excluding models with the AGENT OF CHAOS or UNALIGNED keyword) and every unit from your army (excluding ABADDON THE DESPOILER) is from the same Legion, this unit gains the following rules:
  • Each time a model in this unit shoots with a flame weapon, when determining how many attacks are made with that weapon this phase, add 2 to the result (e.g. a model shooting with a flamer makes D6+2 attacks).
  • This unit gains a bonus (see below) depending on which wanton act it is engaged in, as follows:
    • During the first battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Destruction.
    • During the second battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Massacre.
    • At the start of the third battle round, select either Wanton Massacre or Wanton Slaughter; until the end of that battle round, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in the wanton act you selected.
    • During the fourth and subsequent battle rounds, your army (and every unit from it) is engaged in Wanton Slaughter.
Martial Legacy
If your army is Battle-forged, then when this unit is included in a Detachment, increase that Detachment’s Command Cost by 1CP.
Saving Throw
The player commanding the target unit then makes one saving throw by rolling one D6 and modifying the roll by the Armour Penetration (AP) characteristic of the weapon that the attack was made with. For example, if the weapon has an AP of -1, then 1 is subtracted from the saving throw roll. If the result is equal to, or greater than, the Save (Sv) characteristic of the model the attack was allocated to, then the saving throw is successful and the attack sequence ends. If the result is less than the model’s Save characteristic, then the saving throw fails and the model suffers damage. An unmodified roll of 1 always fails.
Invulnerable Saves
Some models have an invulnerable save. Each time an attack is allocated to a model with an invulnerable save, you can choose to use either its normal Save (Sv) characteristic or its invulnerable save, but not both. If a model has more than one invulnerable save, it can only use one of them – choose which it will use. If you use a model’s invulnerable save, it is never modified by a weapon’s Armour Penetration value.

  • Invulnerable save: Saving throw that is never modified by attacking weapon’s AP.
  • A model with an invulnerable save can use it instead of its normal Sv.

The keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

The DREADNOUGHT keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

The POSSESSED keyword is used in the following Chaos Space Marines datasheets:

Elites
Terrain and Cover
Some pieces of terrain can provide certain bonuses to units in your army. Each bonus and how to acquire it is described in the Terrain Features section of the Core Rules. There are ways for some models to ignore such bonuses while making an attack, but it should be known what kind of benefit is ignored (see the Rare Rules for clarification).
Advance
When a unit makes an Advance, make an Advance roll for the unit by rolling one D6. Add the result in inches to the Move (M) characteristic of each model in that unit until the end of the current phase. Each model in that unit can then move a distance in inches equal to or less than this total, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models. A unit cannot shoot or declare a charge in the same turn that it made an Advance.

  • Advance: Models move up to M+D6".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of enemy models.
  • Units that Advance cannot shoot or charge this turn.
Engagement Range
Engagement Range represents the zone of threat that models present to their enemies. While a model is within 1" horizontally and 5" vertically of an enemy model, those models are within Engagement Range of each other. While two enemy models are within Engagement Range of each other, those models’ units are also within Engagement Range of each other. Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Engagement Range: 1" horizontally + 5" vertically.
  • Models cannot be set up within Engagement Range of enemy models.
Charging with a Unit
Once you have chosen an eligible unit to declare a charge with, you must select one or more enemy units within 12" of it as the targets of its charge. The target(s) of this charge do not need to be visible to the charging unit. You then make a charge roll for your unit by rolling 2D6. This is the maximum number of inches each model in the charging unit can now be moved if they can make the charge move. To make a charge move, the unit’s charge roll must be sufficient that it is able to end that move in unit coherency and within Engagement Range of every unit that was a target of its charge, without moving within Engagement Range of any enemy units that were not a target of its charge. If this is possible, then the charge is successful and the models in the unit make a charge move so as to fulfil the above conditions. If this is impossible, the charge fails and no models in the charging unit move this phase.

  • Declare targets of the charge (must be within 12").
  • Charge roll = 2D6".
  • If insufficient to move charging unit into Engagement Range of all targets, charge fails.
  • If charge successful, models make their charge move.
  • Cannot make a charge move within Engagement Range of any unit that was not the target of the charge.
Morale Tests
To take a Morale test, roll one D6 and add the number of models from the unit that have been destroyed this turn. If the result is equal to or less than the highest Leadership (Ld) characteristic in the unit, the Morale test is passed and nothing else happens. An unmodified roll of 1 also always results in a passed Morale test, irrespective of the total result. In any other case, the Morale test is failed, one model flees that unit, and you must then take Combat Attrition tests for the remaining models in the unit. You decide which model from your unit flees – that model is removed from play and counts as having been destroyed, but it never triggers any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Morale test = D6 + number of models destroyed this turn.
  • Unmodified roll of 1 always a success (no models flee).
  • If Morale test exceeds unit’s Ld, one model flees and other models must take Combat Attrition tests.
Characters
Some models have the CHARACTER keyword. These models can make Heroic Interventions in Charge Phase and are not easy targets in the Shooting Phase (see Look out, Sir, rule). If your Warlord has the CHARACTER keyword he may be able to have a Warlord Trait (see Warlord Trait section on model’s faction page).

Note that CHARACTERS cannot use their Aura Abilities while performing actions.
INSANE BRAVERY2CP
Boarding Action – Epic Deed Stratagem

To commit to battle within the claustrophobic corridors and gothic chambers of a void ship necessitates near-suicidal courage, or else sufficient fear of the consequences of refusal. To stand their ground against impossible odds during such a fight requires warriors to exhibit a kind of single-minded madness.

Use this Stratagem before you take a Morale test for a unit from your army. That test is automatically passed. You can only use this Stratagem once.
COMMAND RE-ROLL1CP
Boarding Action – Battle Tactic Stratagem

Battle aboard a void ship is anarchic and confusing. Auspicators and map-slates must be watched constantly. Enemy contacts ghost in and out of sight as steam billows in clouds, lumen flicker and gunfire roars on every side. Amidst such conditions, the steady hand of a veteran commander is more important than ever, and can spell the difference between triumph and disaster.

Use this Stratagem after you have made a hit roll, a wound roll, a damage roll, a saving throw, an Advance roll, a charge roll, a Psychic test, a Deny the Witch test or you have rolled the dice to determine the number of attacks made by a weapon. Re-roll that roll, test or saving throw.
The Warlord
While mustering your army, you can nominate one model (except a model with the FORTIFICATION keyword) to be your Warlord. That model gains the WARLORD keyword. If this model is a CHARACTER, you can also assign a Warlord Trait to it. Note, that more than one model in your army can have a Warlord Trait (e.g. by using Stratagems), but they are only considered your Warlord for the purpose of that trait.
INSANE BRAVERY2CP
Core Stratagem
Use this Stratagem before you take a Morale test for a unit in your army. That test is automatically passed (do not roll any dice). You can only use this Stratagem once per battle.
Combat Attrition Tests
If a unit fails a Morale test, then after the first model has fled the unit, you must take Combat Attrition tests. To do so, roll one D6 for each remaining model in that unit, subtracting 1 from the result if the unit is below Half-strength; for each result of 1, one additional model flees that unit. You decide which models from your unit flee – those models are removed from play and count as having been destroyed, but they never trigger any rules that are used when a model is destroyed.

  • Combat Attrition tests: Roll one D6 for each remaining model in unit; for each 1, one additional model flees.
  • Subtract 1 from Combat Attrition tests if unit is below Half-strength.
Fall Back
When a unit Falls Back, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, and when doing so you can move it within Engagement Range of enemy models, but it cannot end its move within Engagement Range of any enemy models – if it cannot do this then it cannot Fall Back. A unit cannot declare a charge in the same turn that it Fell Back. A unit cannot shoot or attempt to manifest a psychic power in the same turn that it Fell Back unless it is TITANIC.

  • Fall Back: Models move up to M".
  • Units that Fall Back cannot charge this turn.
  • Units that Fall Back cannot shoot or manifest psychic powers this turn unless they are TITANIC.
Entry Zones
In Boarding Actions, each player will have one or more deployment zones called Entry Zones. Each time a unit from your Boarding Patrol is set up, it must be set up wholly within one of your Entry Zones. If a unit will not fit wholly within an Entry Zone, all of its models must be set up as close to the centre of that Entry Zone as possible.

You cannot set up a unit within an Entry Zone if any other unit is in that Entry Zone. However, when setting up a unit at the start of the battle, you can set up your WARLORD alongside that unit as if it was a part of it, using the same Entry Zone. Rules that prevent a unit from being set up within a specific distance of another model or unit cannot prevent a unit from being set up within an Entry Zone.
Normal Move
When a unit makes a Normal Move, each model in that unit can move a distance in inches equal to or less than the Move (M) characteristic shown on its datasheet, but no model can be moved within Engagement Range of enemy models.

  • Normal Move: Models move up to M".
  • Cannot move within Engagement Range of any enemy models.
COMMAND RE-ROLL1CP
Core Stratagem
Use this Stratagem after you have made a hit roll, a wound roll, a damage roll, a saving throw, an Advance roll, a charge roll, a Psychic test, a Deny the Witch test or you have rolled the dice to determine the number of attacks made by a weapon. Re-roll that roll, test or saving throw.
Aura Abilities
Some abilities affect models or units in a given range – these are aura abilities. A model with an aura ability is always within range of its effect. The effects of multiple, identically named aura abilities are not cumulative (i.e. if a unit is within range of two models with the same aura ability, that aura ability only applies to the unit once).
